This study was taught at our Sunday evening service by Sim Forder, one of our pastors, on the 13th December 2020. You can listen to the audio on this web page or save it for later listening.
During this study we considered the nature of the Holy Spirit – He is more than merely a person. He is God. And He always points to Jesus… He;
- Regenerates and renews us in Christ
- Baptises us for serving Christ
- Places us in the body of Christ
- Is the seal of our Salvation in Christ
- He sanctifies us, making us more like Christ
- He convicts when we are not like Christ
- He confirms we are children of God – joint heirs with Christ!
- He helps us live for Christ
- He guides us into all truth about Christ
- He gives gifts for the benefit of the Bride of Christ
- He glorifies Christ
And as we are told in Luke 11:13, we can ask to be filled with the Holy Spirit, to empower us for service of Christ our Saviour:
If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!Luke 11:13
We also highly commend listening to Doug Keen's 2014 study titled The Holy Spirit: Who He is and what He does available on our web site here.
